About the Author
Greg is a lifelong Marylander and a happily married father of five wonderful children. He's enjoying a successful career in professional publishing in the Washington, D.C. area. He earned a bachelor's degree in Geology and studied theology as preparation for ordained ministry -- then thought better of it. He loves Tolkien, the Dune books, Sherlock Holmes, P.G. Wodehouse, Mark Twain and C.S. Lewis when he's not reading history, philosophy or politics. Greg has always enjoyed long chats with friends over a beer or two about the issues of the day, and he fulfills that need in the digital age by writing the Crowhill weblog (http://crowhill.net/blog). Greg is a long-time home brewer (beer, wine and mead), an occasional jogger and flag-football player, an out of practice black belt and trumpet player, an avid writer and blogger, and enjoys camping and fishing.

Plot is simple: a father receives a phone call and discovers that his son is missing for weeks. While searching for his son, he finds a scaring new world and the more he digs into it, the more dangerous it becomes, both in his real and fictional worlds. I found the end surprising and we just stay wondering if something like the described situation cannot be real... Will there be a sequel?
This is an excellent entertainment reading that I recommend to the permanent library of any science-fiction lover. It took me around 3 hours to read the whole book.
This book was written by Greg Krehbiel and published by Crowhill Publishing in October 2012.
Reminded me of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere in some ways, although it is quite different.
It talks of a world where humans are diverse - while the majority are normal, there are deviations into different groups.
It is fun to read and takes you on an enjoyable ride of the hidden village within the big city.
The ontological questions raised in the book are fascinating. Are all men truly created equal? as the American ethos foundationally claims. Does one moral code guide all humans equally? as most monotheistic religions fundamentally assume. While the traditional answers to these questions are not seriously challenged, the "what-if" scenario Krehbiel constructs makes one toy with the idea that other answers are at least possible.
By the end of this fast-paced saga, the reader is left wondering how so much has so subtly been challenged and explored. As satisfying as this story is, I am left eagerly awaiting the story's continuation.
